Special Feature: Many works from Nobuhiro are solid and large: this work is 79.3cm long. It is an Okissaki work and looks just like the ones by Akamatsu Taro. We wanted to submit this work for the Polish Competition 2022, but the competition was cancelled, so we decided to sell it. We truly recommend this solid, powerful, and large work.

From Aoi Art: The length and thickness are appropriate, with deeper Sori and longer Kissaki. We are looking forward to seeing this sword smith to grow more and more to make more masterpieces.
